I'm recording it now on my PVR!!!

I am so very proud of them! They are defending public breastfeeding and a mother's right and baby's right to breastfeed anywhere and everywhere!!!

WOW!

Unfortunately the way the Bell Express Vue PVR works there is no way to actually upload it to my system. It's to prevent copyright violations in Canada.

I wish I could because people really should see this as Penn and Teller's BS show is widely followed from what I hear!

They did an awesome job too, made me giggle at that criminal lawyer who wants to outlaw NIP in the USA! It was a woman too and you could tell she didn't have kids either.

I can give a run down if you like?

I haven't seem the show yet but Penn and Teller are very very happy to show breasts on their bs shows for no good reason. While it's great they are defending a mother's right to nurse anywhere I can't help thinking they are just hoping to see some boobs.

Yah, but that's just it... b/c they are very happy to show breasts, and considering they can generally figure out how to put breasts into any show on any topic they do... I doubt they did this topic just hoping to see some, when they could have made any show and figured a way to show breasts. Kwim?

I'd think in a show about breast-feeding, you'd probably see less of the actual breast, since much of it would be used by the nursing child.

Glad to hear they finally did the show on it.

It was very Beevis and Butthead and adolescent at times.

Some of it was good, and they were definitely pro-bfing, but the overall tone was rather off-putting to me.

The topic wasn't just bfing, it was breasts, in general. So there were tons of full-on nude shots with lots of pointing and giggling and, "Heh, heh, let's see the boobies again."

I'd give it a C- as a lactivism piece. Maybe. The crazy lawyer who compared NIP to having sex with children was pretty priceless....

eta: Here's a quick recap that I posted elsewhere (sorry if its repetitive):

~The female lawyer who would like to outlaw NIP, b/c a child seeing a woman bf does the same damage to a kid as having sex with an adult. Yes. I kid you not. She was a total freak and they rewound that part and subtitled it for affect.

~The pro-bf porn star--who bf both her kids and was a member of LLL! She talked about how silly it is that people can't separate the sexual from the nurturing, and how amazing bfing her kids was. (Except, most of the time she was talking they were showing clips of her filming with two other naked women all fondling each other's breasts--and commenting on it. )

~A bfing mom who was kicked out of Toys-R-Us for bfing her kid. And a funny spoof where Penn & Teller were shopping for baby stuff and asked for a lifelike pacifier, and they brought out a woman with a gift box around her breast! And said something to the effect of, "The best pacifier out there!"

~A woman who is on a "Free the Breast" crusade--she wants to be able to go topless wherever men can. Interesting, but kind of bizarre and lots of footage of bikers flashing themselves.

Thanks, Monkey'sMom, for the gist of the show.

It may not have been as informative and wholesome as it could have been. However, using comedy is a great tool. Hopefully, the show helped open a few closed minds. Kudos to Penn and Teller.
